for that year. i can tell you that working with americas cup taught me volumes about how red and i quick we can be when we're smart in planning ahead to supply the capacity when and where it needs to be. so, summaries about first round of workshops we had on october 30th, these are just two of the six slides. we have the marked up maps, the top six concerns. we also have pages of individual concerns that came out of that. these are also posted on our website because we want this process to be transparent. if you weren't able to make work shock 1 on october 30th we're hoping you'll help us december 4th the next workshop. at that workshop i've already heard loud and clear from the community let's have better data on the integration of land use and transportation. so, we are preparing maps that show not only all those transit networks but what the land use is, making sure the future transit is falling where the land use needed to be. but thanks to the planning department, we've got those maps underway. what's really interesting is the comment that came out was, okay, we've got this data, we know i
, gaza will be a quiet place. >> reporter: america is poised to help both sides. the obama administration says it will ask congress to increase funding for israel's defense system that helped intercept 80% of hamas rockets. and american tax dollars also provide assistance to the u.n. organizations that support the palestinians. with egypt as mediator, both sides are trying to negotiate a more permanent agreement. israel wants to end weapons smuggling at the gaza. hamas wants to end a five-year border blockade. >>> thanksgiving warning turned into a nightmare for hundreds of people caught up in a major pileup in texas. more than 140 cars and trucks lay twisted and broken. the huge crash happened as holiday travelers tried to navigate through dense fog. drivers could do little to get out of the way. >> i just grabbed my kids, pulled them out of the car and ran. that's all i could do. >> at least two people died and more than 80 were hurt, several critically. and rescue crews credit many drivers for helping each others while first responders were overwhelmed. >>> police in berkeley are hopin
to you. i'm veronica de la cruz. it is a black day across america, and retailers couldn't be happier. if you thought last year's black friday was insane, it is even crazier this year and that's because sale-driven shoppers who gave up part or all of their thanksgiving to camp out for hours weren't just waiting around for specials today. after testing the waters last year, more and more big name stores like target, toys"r"us and walmart opened their doors last night, some as early as 8:00 p.m. >>> it's more than a stunt. the door busting deals are a life line for the brick and mortar businesses banking on the nearly one in five holiday shoppers who they say will take full advantage of this year's head starts on bargains. at stake, more than half a trillion dollars. >>> like those braving the crowds, we are ready to dive right into the middle of the madness. nbc's jay gray is live for us this morning at the mall of america outside of minneapolis. all right. what have you bought so far? >> reporter: i've been too busy to shop. come on, very ron kachlt we'll talk later. maybe i can pick
is the america's cup experience. you remember the weekend supposed to end by weekend. october 6 or october 7 where we had america's cup fleet week, giants, 49ers, everything happening. we had extraordinary transit modes. we had record rider ship on every single conveyor of people moving out of the area. the lesson is don't scare people away. invite them to take transit. make the options real. do fantastic marketing. i have a feeling our transit was some of the highest we ever saw. it is much more malleable formula. i would say the assumptions back in '99 weren't that far off from where we were, but the trends we're seeing now are positive in getting more people walking and bicycle and especially with the america's cup experience on transit. >> my question, then -- another question on the giants stadium, when you looked at the cost in terms of the transit investments that we had to make, some increased demand in the neighborhood, do you feel like we were able to adequately calculate those costs and how with the warriors arena do we plan to estimate from that? and if the impact fee is in the r
a change in america in 2006, 2007, even before barack obama became president. i think there is more willingness to understand the story, but the story has not been told. it is the story of the europeans, the indians, and the africans building america. the kinsey collection and our family has gone about trying to say we are part of this story and that narrative is a powerful narrative of accomplishment and triumphed. over the past six years, we have been able to reach 3 million people. i mean, we have just had so many actions, so many cities, so many museums, and the general response has ben, "we did not know that." that is what we start with any time we do a performance. we want you to leave and say, i did not know that. that started in 1600, and we take you to the incredible people, whose lives were lost in obscurity. we have taken them out of their graves and given them a personality, a name, a voice. tavis: why for you has this been such a passionate project? i have known you for many years. both of you knew have found that as well enough off to sit in retirement where you want,
america, and retailers couldn't be happier. if you thought last year's black friday was insane, it is even crazier this year. nearly everywhere you look, it's all about the long lines and high demand. sale-driven shoppers who gave up part or all of their thanksgiving to camp out for hours weren't just waiting around for big deals today. some opened their doors last night. some as early as 8:00 p.m. the door-busting deals are a lifeline for those brick and mortar businesses banking on the nearly 1 out of 5 holiday shoppers who say they are taking full advantage of this year's head start on bargains. at stake, more than $500 billion. >>> and like those braving the crowds, we are ready to dive right in to all of that madness. nbc's jay gray is live for us at the mall of america outside of minneapolis. jay, it's looking pretty busy. what time is it there right now? >> good morning. it is very busy here in the mall of america. and it has been. that's the thing. and people not just looking. they are actually buying. we see a lot of people carrying bags. trying to find that deal that you talk abo
is kate smith singing irving berlin's "god bless america." and that'sthat was the big hit of the year. and woody hated that song. kate smith: [singing] god bless america some interesting songs, because as he was hitchhiking north and eastland that i love. stand beside her, and guide her through the night with a light from above. will kaufman: now, i mean, there's two ways you can look at that song. you can look at "god bless america," written by irving berlin, all rightit's the fearful prayer, almost, of a european jewish immigrant to the united states who's nervously watching the rise of fascism in europe and praying that it won't happen over here. he actually wrote it back in 1917 and put it away. but, you know, looking at hitler across the sea, he's maybe thinking it's time for that song to be resurrected. so that's a charitable way of looking at it. it's not bombastic, it's not patriotic; it's fearful, and it's hopeful. that's not the way woody saw it. woody saw it as a strident, jingoistic, complacent, tub- thumping anthem to american greatness. and now, he had just come from the
for this invitation. let's celebrate the irish in the americas. i put a title to my conversation with you today, take the journey with me, and i wanted to read you an irish proverb that i like it very much because it's the way the history of myself, the history of my family. the longest road out is the shortest road home. and so travel with me and let's go to havana, cuba, and to know a little bit about the irish, the few irish that went to cuba, in particular to havana. i want you to know that on the left side of the entrance to the havana harbor, there is a well-known fortress, el moro. there is a lighthouse there and the moro has become a image of cuban nationality and in particular havana. in that lighthouse you find, you read an -- when you enter the havana harbor, you find an irish name. that lighthouse was known for many years as the odono lighthouse. who was this person, odono the man that oversaw the project of the lighthouse in 1844 and he was a governor of cuba from 1843 to 48, but he was a spanish man of irish origin and irish ancestry, a descendant of the -- chieftan of the ticanelles. h
that incentive, and as a result the rain forest its butchered. john: in america people own sections a forest. the government house forest. there are more forest fires in the government-owned forest and privately-owned forests. people have more incentive to take care of their would. >> plant more anto not cut it downearly. that is the biggest problem. we see it with the pilgrims. they pick the corner early. fishing. keep the small fish rather than throwing it back if it's not your pond. it's a notion you throw it bac. someone else will get it. keep it. if it's yours, let it grow to the size that it should. it is publicly owned, you worry about the other pochard coming in and taking a. john: i understand how private ownership would work in some and land area, but i can't see how you do with the ocean. >> a couple issues. migrating fish, you can't really on the property. you can on the fish, have a certain tagged fish with electronic surveillance and other technologies, but the way they solve the problem with notions as the tuna. they build these enormous bins. it's a fish farm in the ocean. sa

not starting from scratch. i worked very closely with america's cup. the people's plan was a product of a lot of community input and a lot of those concerns and issues came right out of the same area of the waterfront we're talking about now. because that was so recently gathered, that input, that became a great foundation for us to say, hey, if you've already spent some of those 260 meetings we had in the last two years in the america's cup, your thoughts, your comments weren't wasted on us. we recorded them, actually color-coded them to make sure i took track of what we heard in the beginning of 2010, what we heard in 2011, what we heard in 2012. these are actually online. hosted by wed's website. there are pages and pages of community input about transit, about pedestrian safety, about accessibility, about employers worried about their employees getting to work. and we also wanted to make sure that we had comments resolved in time because we had a great experience with the america's cup. and ware going to have more experiences with the america's cup. last year was the first test of what is

to see taxes go dow and someone say america is great. let's do everything we can to eliminate obstacles to success vmax my next guest says that regulations are really killing business. we have congressman eric cantor, the house majority leader is pushing to cut the red tape. and since he does have out there, he actually has a shot at doing it. it's just to hard right now for businesses to continue to operate, given all the onerous and burdensome regulations coming out of washington. and we want to make that stop so we can turn the country around and began to be a starter country again. we know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see more startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to hope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canad
again, i'm waking up again. >> america now, lost in suburbia. >> thanks for joining us. i'm lester holt. many of us have a lot to be thankful for today, but even as the u.s. economy starts to sputter back to life, millions of americans remain unemployed and they're suffering. many find themselves falling out of the middle class and falling into poverty. there are more people living in the suburbs than in cities and we have been following three families as they confronted poverty. they face losing their homes and their future, yet never losing themselves. diane is the kind of do it all mom you often meet in the affluent suburbs of boulder, colorado. >> we're going to get some groceries. pasta, rice. cereal. a gallon of milk possibly and eggs. >> she's an ambitious human resource executive with a master's degree, a husband, three kids. and a comfortable home. so what is diane doing here? >> you're entitled to the government commodity today. can you use rice krispies? >> yeah. >> and a food pantry. >> i never thought we'd be in this predicament so many unknowns. >> they didn't see it comin

gray is right out there amongst all of them. he's joining us from the mall of america in minnesota. it looks a little more crowded than it was the last time we checked in there. >> reporter: hey there, alex. it is and it continues to get more crowded. it's amazing how many people can come through this massive mall. more than 4 million square feet of shopping. more than 520 shops and stores. so if you want it and can't get it here, you probably just can't get it at all. it looks like they're not only shopping but they're buying. you can see everybody here carrying a bag and it's got something in it. that's good news not only for those getting bargains, this is such an important part of their holiday season. it kicks off what is their biggest month. right now we're hearing that things are great here at the mall of america. they were already up by 6% in retail sales and they only believe that's going to grow as they continue. this was one of the areas that started early, alex. this is one of the areas that actually opened last night. it looks like spreading that out a bit may have hel
feelings, it gets further at a difficult time in their lives. it is important that the rest of america be ready to be the team that they come back to. >> general powell, it is at least on the table in this country at the moment about what we do with returning veterans. we have the when did warrior project. j.p. morgan chase has gotten involved. it was different when you came home from vietnam. in the ensuing years for all that the military did for reinventing itself, it did not pay a lot of attention to the idea of how we make the transition from a military life to a civilian life. >> that is quite true. i am quite pleased to be here. i did not work with general mcchrystal, but i worked with his father.
